HOMEMADE HAWAIIAN BREAD

Nothing beats the taste (or smell!) of homemade bread and I’m always looking for new bread recipes. I had never tried to make Hawaiian Bread before, but I was intrigued by the idea of putting pineapple juice in the dough so I decided to give it a shot! This bread is fantastic! The consistency is wonderful! It definitely tastes like Hawaiian bread, but the flavor isn’t super strong or overly sweet which surprised me since there are 2 cups of pineapple juice in the recipe. Each batch makes three loaves and all three loaves were gone within a couple of days at my house – I consider that a success! This is also a great recipe for those who haven’t had much experience with yeast because you don’t have to proof the yeast or get water to a certain temperature or anything – you literally just add the yeast straight to the dough and it works out perfectly!

HOMEMADE HAWAIIAN BREAD

  • 6 cups flour + 1/2 cup flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups pineapple juice
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 pkg. yeast (1 1/2 TBSP)
  • 1 stick butter (1/2 cup), melted

Beat eggs, add pineapple juice, sugar, ginger, vanilla and melted butter. Stir until combined. Place 3 cups of flour in stand mixer (I use a Bosch). Add the egg mixture and mix until well combined. Sprinkle in the yeast and mix well. Add the other 3 cups of flour and mix on low speed for about 2-3 minutes. Place the dough in a greased bowl and cover with cloth in a warm place. Let rise for 1 hour.

Remove the dough from the bowl and knead in 1/2 cup flour until barely combined. Divide the dough into three equal parts, shape into balls, and then place in greased round cake pans. Cover with cloth and let the dough rise for about another hour. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes. As with any bread, it tastes the best straight out of the oven with melted butter! Enjoy!
